How Joe's new server H.A.L. killed me (G.G.)....but I resurrected.

Remember GrannyGear? That's me. Only now I'm "CrossChain". Fricking indignity.

When H.A.L.'s database flipped out last week, I guess GrannyGear and all record of him got etherized.
The server simply refused to recognize me, my password, etc. So, I've had to re-register. In the process, I've lost my red star and become a newbie....double frickin' indignity! Wonder if Joe will believe me when I email asking for reinstatement.

So, now I've returned as CrossChain. Had to use my daughter's old computer to do so. I'm pc ignorant-- wonder if it has to do with my I.P. address? A change of identity is nice once in a while I guess.

Anyway, nice to be back. If I suddenly disappear again, notify Joe to push back from his chimichanga and come look for me.

You sure you're not Granny Diego?

Funny thing -- I was actually thinking about GG today on my ride, and wondering why he hadn't posted in so long. I was even getting ready to send a PM to enquire. So now you're CrossChain? What's with you and alliteration, anyway?

Talk about identity theft. I've been virtually erased by the cyber-system. They make movies about stuff like this. I'm a real person but nobody believes it....instead, everyone thinks the Diego clan are living, breathing, burping, scratching real people. Surreal.

DeeGee, donch'a know me....we were like brothers....I was Lucky's godparent sorta.

Sumitted for your approval. A mild mannered grade school professor assumes the identity of a witty poster in an internet chat room, only to have his identity stolen from him by the very forum he posted in.

Alien beings, long rumored to be at the heart of said forum, erase every trace of the professor, leaving he and his on-line cronies...in The Twilight Zone.

CrossGear, Son of GrannyGear, __________,

I see that you are bordering on a heresy! And such language! Show some contrition. After all this BF computer is just an imperfect creation by imperfect humans. Only our Lord was perfect. Say 10 Hail Marys and meet me in the confessional at 8:00 a.m. sharp!

Father "D"
